Storyline

An unexplained, local split in the atmosphere causes a series of total unpredictable, yet devastating tornadoes. Rookie fireman Brian Flynn gets trapped in the underground sewage with his girlfriend, deputy mayor James 'Jim' Lawrence and climatologist Dr. Cassie Lawrence's niece Lori. Mayor Leonardo of New York initially refuses to pay proper attention to the phenomenon, a 'reelection threat', so the alert status remains too low for long. Atypical lightning discovered inside tornadoes adds unprecedented dangers. The Lawrences and aeronautics renegade Dr. Lars Liggenhorn conceive a possible solution by launching rockets, but NASA's Dr. Quinn overrules them, imposing standard silver iodine.

Tornados and Global Warming... Is this movie serious?
27 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well... seems this came out during the time that the major networks were having their "green" week... They release a movie that blames global warming for tornadoes that attack NYC...

Global warming is a myth that rich people created to try and make the poorer/dumber people to believe in so they would not use as much natural resources... Pure garbage...

Anyway... this movie is a result of the global warming hysteria crowd that tries to spread their lies...

PS - This movie was terrible and pathetic... Why watch a movie that is the same thing as MSNBC?
